Summer vacations have finally arrived and many families are looking for ways to cool off. Often that includes swimming.
Around 20 years ago the late B.B. Baxley grieved over the drownings of children in Barnwell County. He decided to do something about it.
A member of the Rotary Club of Barnwell County, he recruited the club to sponsor a swim program whereby American Red Cross certified instructors teach children how to swim.
The club continued to sponsor the program even after Baxley passed away.
